Just tested DEKE for a day, here's my summary
Live channels, some are smotth and some channels does lag. Sometimes it's unable to load and it did kick me out from the app and weren't able to login for like 30 minutes. overall picture quality is great , changing channel is super fast like maige, interface does have some feel of maige, channel listings are decent, it does have i-cable news channel which i really want. Summary: not as good as maige, but better than ubtv.
Playback: only 21 channels and not really working, every replay is pretty much playing the same recording on all channels, They're repairing it now and possibly adding more replay channels, and it only has 5 days. summary: so far not workable
Overall: great potential, really does have the maige feel. I'll join month by month for $10 to see if they will improve on their product, yearly fee i think is around $95
Thanks cmyk for introducing this app. I think given them another 6 months to improve, they can be like maige,
finally got the update, ubtv working properly again, app market is accessible.
UBTV is up and down at the moment but I'm hoping for more stability at the end of the month. I hope they are really updating their servers to make it more usable rather than what happened to Maige.
I tried Deke Tv today. It has a lot of good channels. Was told on Wechat that the fee is $80 a year or 499 yuan a year. No monthly rate was offered. Channel listings are in chinese and in fact the whole Deke system is geared towards Chinese people. With a bit of time an English user could work it out I suppose? It definitely loads faster than UBTV but getting through the password login screen can take several attempts and some time.
